Discover the structures that give poetry its power—rhyme, meter, metaphor, and more—as you learn to read poetry more deeply.
Grammar of Poetry teaches the mechanics of poetry by using the classical approach of imitation. It is designed for the 6–9th grade level, but is also appropriate for older children and adults seeking to achieve a better knowledge of how poetry works. Its goal is to teach your child to analyze not only poetry, but words and language in general. Just as an English course would teach a student the different parts of speech, so also the Grammar of Poetry teaches a student the building blocks of poetry, enabling the student to effectively engage the language of poetry in literature and in non-literal language.
